About Us

“Genius is the gold in the mine; talent is the miner who works and brings it out.” ~Marguerite Blessington Mining is a vast field that deals with identification, extraction, production and processing of valuable minerals like coal, petroleum, metallic and non-metallic minerals, from natural reserves without causing any harm to the surroundings where the extraction activity takes place. Mining engineers design safe and efficient mines for removing coal and metals. Mining engineers optimize mines for removing natural resources in the most efficient manner possible. They ensure to extract as much resource as possible. Mining engineers often specialize in a particular mineral or metal, such as iron or coal. They also assess the geological characteristics of mining sites and determine the structures, equipment and processes to be used at a particular operation and collaborate with geologists to find and evaluate new ore deposits.
